Pork 'cutlet' Steak with Mushrooms
Warm food on a cold day that is simple and delicious! Pork cutlet is a cut of meat is usually quite reasonably priced; which means that you don't have to check the sale papers. Pork is the other white meat and it is good tasting. You should buy the amount of cutlets you need. I say cutlets though one should consider it a loin steak that is not pounded. Brown your meat in a skillet on med heat in 3 tbs of olive oil and the same of coconut oil. Season with dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano. Add to that fresh washed, sliced mushrooms and chopped onion can be a nice addition as well. Cover and simmer for 20 min on low heat. Prepare your sides: vegetables or potatoes. I like julienne cut carrots and parsnips sauteed in olive oil and herbs. About 10 min. before serving, add 1/4 cup of heavy cream and a rue (2 tbs.butter and flour paste) to your meat and mushrooms which have been bubbling in a rich sauce. This will create a simply gorgeous delicious gravy.
